SOURCE: not playing music

No Music Files Problem solved
Plug the MP3 player to PC
In Windows XP open Windows Explorer and navigate to one of the music files
Try to play the file in Windows
If it fails, unplug player and once the player switches off carry out a reset
Reconnect player to PC and repeat the process described above
You may need to repeat this several times until the music file plays in Windows.
After this format the player using Windows XP
Select the removable hard drive, right click and select format
Choose Fat32, enter a volume label (for example GMP33005) and select quick format
If formatting fails try several times
Once format is succesfull reload your music files using the software that came with the player
Be careful not to exceed 2.5 or 2.6 GB (leave some free space as this might be needed for the player to work)
The player should now play the music files correctly

It is either toast or the music is not compatible with the mp3 player...

make sure your music file isn't broken and it is either a .mp3 or .wma file.

SOURCE: mp3 player says ''no file'' after repeated Sync attempts

I have one of these too and finally figured it out! If you push the menu button on the side, you get a menu that you can scroll through with the left/right arrows on the face. The music icon should be first in the list, but if not, scroll until you get it highlighted. Once highlighted, push menu again to select it. My trouble was in not realizing that the menu button is also the select button!

My new technika mp 112 mp3 player says "No Authority" when I try to play music. I can play thte music on my laptop but not the mpe player. What is the problem and how do I fix it


What its saying is that you do not own these songs legally so you have "no authority". Which means you have no rights/licenses with these songs as you can not use them legally. So you would need to go buy these songs legally, as some MP3 players have "copyright cops" in them.

I have copied some wma music files onto it but it will not play. It says, No authority (and has DRM in the top left corner)


It's a pain but if you can burn those files from windows media player to an 'audio disc' not an mp3 disc and then re-import them into windows or whatever you use from that audio disc as mp3 files they will shed their DRM's. DRM's stand for digital rights management so be sure your not infringing on copyrights when you do this and only do it for music that you actually own.

I HAVE COPIED MUSIC USING WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER TO MY BASE MP3 PLAYER AND ALL THE SONGS CAN BE SEEN ON THE PLAYER. WHEN I PRESS THE PLAY BUTTON, A MESSAGE COMES UP SAYING 'NO AUTHORITY' AND THE MUSIC WILL...


this is because the songs are still copyrighted. your mp3 should have come with software and if you install this software the it will convert the files to correct format and they will be able to play on the mp3 player

No Authority


make sure the songs are in the right format - if the songs are drm-encrypted this player won't be able to recognize them

Player won't play some songs - It states "No Authority" and won't play them


That generally means that the song was purchased online. Music purchased on line will sometimes not be allowed to transfer to mp3 players. That's to keep you from buying a song, putting it on your player and then transferring it to another computer. Part of the anti-piracy deal. If the songs that won't play were not purchased on line, then there may be deeper problems with your player and you may need to reformat the device.

Hey! I have the same player like you have. The only difference is that my player has no FM, but this has not to be a problem. I say it like this, send me on my email a file wich makes you problems to see if it showes the same problem. Maybe the files wich your player allowes you to play on must be with copyright or something like that. We should try to do it like this and see if you file works on my player or not. My email is (bigguy_ro@yahoo.com) Best regards, Laurentiu no name
